Indonesia-based beauty, health and wellness services marketplace SpaVista has today announced securing a six digit figure* in seed funding from the founding team of Singapore’s online classifieds platform for cars sgCarMart and other investors such as Joel Fu, Strategy Director, sgCarMart.

Specifically, the founding team of sgCarMart is made up of Henry Seah, Tan Jing Lun, and Vincent Tan.
